FIXES AND NOTES:
A remastered, retracked version of shnid 5249
Abrupt track cuts were faded for continuity.
Dead air before and after songs was eliminated.
Vocals were attenuated for proper balance.
No patches were made due to lack of an aud source.
Disc 1, track 9, incomplete, fades out
Disc 1, track 13, 2 second cut at 04:00
Disc 2, track 1, incomplete, fades out
Disc 2, track 2, guessing at title
Disc 3, track 1, fades out
Disc 3, track 5, incomplete, fades out
Grace Slick (vocalist of Jefferson Airplane) sings on Disc 2
track 2, plus helps out with harmony on several other tracks.
This is a terrific performance and a nice overall recording.
Another ignored jewel returned to general circulation.

Good, not terrific
Definitely not a polished performance, and although there are some sweet moments (the Playing in the Band is noteworthy), it mostly lacks any superlative experimentalism that would mollify the sloppiness.

You did a truly excellent job on this one, as usual. Thank you. This one is a gem.
Anyone who doesn't want this goes to the remedial class.
This is just freaking killer stuff and it sounds great. Whatever audio issues there are due to the master, age, etc. are more than offset by being able to hear Jerry, Bob, Phil and Bill-- the mix is great.

If dog's were in the vicinity , they'd be yelping
Anyone who thinks that Phil can sing should take a listen to Ten Jed , not much has changed in 40 + years ...

Thanks for the upload! Grace slick and the Grateful Dead! Way too cool, I wish there were more recordings made of them together. The Mountain Song from the PERRO sessions feat Garcia,Crosby, and Grace is awesome! You can also here Grace on piano during those sessions, and a women that sounds very close to her sings on a 1969 show during a very trippy group chant/vocalizations from everybody in the venue.
I also love to think about how Grace was there listening to some classic Grateful Dead, imagine that during Brokedown Palace = Grateful Dead Family Vibes

Nice Remaster, Thanks!
Sound quality is a 3/5. It's very listenable but there's background hiss and something I refer to as "compression artifacts" - high end sounds a bit lossy. It's most noticeable on cymbals and quieter tracks.
Grace Slick's contribution is minimal and really not a good representation of what she was able to add to Jefferson Airplane. I'm guessing it was an unplanned guest appearance that nobody was taking seriously. The blues track she sings on is mostly cut and about the worst kind of song to have her lead on as it doesn't suit her style well. Would have been better to have her on Greatest Story or Other One where the power and emotion would be put to good use.
Good show overall. I'm looking forward to DP 11, just a month after this show.
